The nurgly standardbearer made last week was the first to be recruited - he felt more like a fantasy mini anyway.
Here's the other two:
What's next I hear you ask? Well the suggestion box is open. The warband is certainly in need of a wizard so that's more or less a given. Other than that it's an open field.
Looking good – I particularly like the way the last chap is holding his axe. It looks slightly unnatural and insectoid somehow. Coupled with the antennae antlers and the pincers under the helmet, he looks subtly wasp-like.ReplyDelete
Part of what I really like about Nurgle in Warhammer is the balance of gleeful innocence and spiteful malice. It's got remnants of that peculiar dark humour that pervaded the game way back, so can I suggest a drummer boy? It'd be a great way to hint at a carnivalesque nature.
Good suggestion! However the little nurgly bellringer I made last week will serve as musican / comic relief. Neither he really feels like a 40k mini so he'll do nicely. I just need to give the little bugger a new base.Delete
Looking good Vader.ReplyDelete
Beastmen! For me at least they are the epitome of Old World Warhammer :)
True that. A few pestigors are definitely a must.Delete
Wow - those are so great models, brilliant paintjob on the first oneReplyDelete
Looking great these. Might steal some ideas for my own warband. Keep up the good work Vader!ReplyDelete
You steal away!
Love the "skinny" feller. Has a Frazetta feel about him.
Haha! You're absolutely right!Delete
He really does have something Frazettish about him... Looks like something Deathdealer would chop up on a cover.
Exciting stuff there... everyone should have a Chaos warband. That last guy with the plaguebearer body is particularly good.ReplyDelete
Nurgle Ungors? Pathetic little guys to fetch and carry for the big boys, and lend a few arrows to a battle before scarpering off when threatened.
Thanks! There will be beastmen of some kind at least - but I'm more partial to pestigors than ungors I must confess...Delete
I wonder if you could get a nurgling head to fit an ungor... hmm.Delete
You know you totally should have a massive hulking minotaur in this warband! With the pose from the good old Mordheim mino.ReplyDelete
Other than that this looks very promising Jeff! I've also enjoyed fantasy loads these last months so have fun :)
Good call! A minotaur is more or less a must!Delete
That new boneripper fits the bill quite well ;) with some work mind but stillDelete
Haha. It is a bit huge for a minotaur methinks...Delete
Nah. That would bring it between the plastic minotaurs and the ghorgon but better proportioned than either. Besides that slab of muscle would convey the menace a lot better alongside your supersized infantry.Delete
Sorry to be a bother, but could you tell me the parts used for the last mini? He looks great!ReplyDelete
Not a problem!Delete
Plaguebearer body and half of the right arm. Head, left arm, right hand and loincloth nicked from the blightkings. Orc boyz shield. That´s it.
Thanks for taking the time to let me know what you used.Delete
Much appreciated :)
